KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Brighton

  • When looking for your car hire in Brighton, keep in mind that a convenient way to see the city is in your own car. There is adequate public transport, but everybody likes the advantage of not having to stick to timetables. Hiring a car in the city offers you flexibility on where you visit and will also allow you to explore further afield if you want to go on a day trip.
  • Car hire in Brighton is very convenient when you pick your car up from one of the main car hire companies based at Melbourne Airport (MEL). After a long flight, you are going to want to get to your next destination as quickly as possible. The companies located at the airport include Avis, Budget, Europcar, Enterprise, Hertz and Sixt, and they are situated on the ground floor, opposite Terminal 2.
  • Getting around Brighton is fairly simple in your Brighton car hire; however, do keep in mind the middle of the city can become fairly busy and congested, so make sure you take your GPS with you to plan in advance. Once you have finished your retail therapy and got the most out of the bustling city, you can easily take a trip to the famous Dendy Street Beach, with its row of colourful bathing boxes that line the shore.
  • Although there are many varied options for parking in Brighton, you still can come across some difficulties in rush hour traffic and peak times. It’s best to go to the city at specific times, so as to not be stuck in traffic jams or waste time trying to find parking. Do your city parking research when looking for car hire in Brighton, to familiarise yourself with the rules. There are options for free parking (within a certain time limit), metered car parks and shopping zone car parks, but try familiarising yourself with these parking areas before you head to the city, so you don’t get lost and stressed.
  • Mini hire cars in Brighton are around 90% more expensive than other car types, on average

If you’re planning on a long-distance trip, you might consider an SUV with more luggage space or even a van if you are travelling in a group. It depends on your travel plans, but an SUV is a more comfortable car to drive. An automatic transmission car is also a good idea for the inner city.

  • What’s the speed limit in Brighton?

    There are varying speed limits within Brighton central, but the general rule is a speed limit of 40 km/h; this is to keep the city streets safe even with a large number of cyclists and pedestrians. The smaller streets can go as low as 20 km/h, so you need to keep your eye on the speed signs very carefully. You don’t want to be caught off guard when the speed limit changes from one street to the next.

  • Where are the best places to park in Brighton?

    There are varied parking options throughout the city of Brighton, but it is best to choose a paid car park and then walk to the different areas of the city. You can choose to have paid street parking, but these are strictly time limited, so there are more options for all the drivers of the city. A wise option is to find a paid car park and leave your car there for the day whilst you explore the city. Parking becomes somewhat easier on the outskirts of the city.
